Don’t miss this contemporary take on Beethoven’s Fidelio. In prisoner of the state, our climactic season finale, Pulitzer Prize–winning composer David Lang transforms the classic opera into an exploration of challenging an evil government, putting a fresh lens on the fall of a political tyrant. The Philharmonic — an integral part of the drama — serves as witness in this fully staged opera.
